Portable PixMap Importer Exporter is a small but versatile plugin for Adobe Photoshop that allows the import and export of the PixMap file format. The PPM / PGM / PBM file format is a convenient image file format which allows one to save an image in ASCII or BINARY mode. Because ASCII is simple text, it allows anyone to easily import these images into one's own applications. It also allows one to open the ASCII file in any text editor and make changes if desired. ASCII images are text based and therefore large and slow loading. BINARY images are smaller and faster loading but are not text based.
Portable PixMap Importer Exporter has a lot of users in the development sector. This is because this tool is convenient for outputting imagery in a format that can be easily imported into custom coded material. The research for this plugin was taken in part from the very talented Paul Bourke.
